Congratulations to the Shriver Center’s Isha Jalnapurkar, MD, assistant professor of psychiatry; Julie LeMoine, assistant professor of psychiatry; and Mo Hammad Modarres, PhD, assistant professor of psychiatry. They, along with medical student Linh Nguyen, collaborated on a grant proposal entitled  Enhancing Social Skills for Transition-Age Teens/Young Adults with Autism XR.”

The project is a continuation of LeMoine’s professional interest in the field of virtual reality (VR), and aims to use VR as an enhancement in an already existing social skills program for transition-age individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
